Baptist Hospice to host blood drive to honor veterans

Baptist Hospice and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers are hosting a blood drive as a special way to remember and honor veterans, as well as give back to the community. The We Honor Veterans Blood Drive will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday Nov. 8 at 301 Interstate Park in Montgomery.

Baptist Hospice is proud to be a We Honor Veterans Partner. According to We Honor Veterans, one in four dying Americans is a veteran. Many of whom are facing challenges from illness, isolation or traumatic life experience. We Honor Veterans is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. The program helps hospice organizations address the unique needs of veterans using hospice care.  

This is the sixth year Baptist Hospice has hosted a blood drive. In recognition of Veterans Day and National Hospice/Palliative Care Month (November), the staff at Baptist Hospice believes in the importance of helping bring awareness to hospice and the needs of its patients.  

Baptist Hospice encourages the community to celebrate the life of someone you love by donating blood in honor or memory of them, or donate as a thank you to veterans.
